MFT Sketch 535 Guest Designer + a tutorial!

Hello to you! It's my last day guesting for the MFT March Sketch Challenge. Besides my take on the sketch, you'll get a tutorial on how to color number balloons to make them look like foil number balloons. I got asked a lot about them on previous cards, so here it is. But first comes Sketch 535:

And this is what I made inspired by it:

Here I started with a white card base and stamped the Pumped-Up Numbers with grey ink. After I had added highlights with a white gel pen, I added a strip of grey cardstock, a rectangle of white cardstock and covered the front with vellum to tone it down. Now I stamped the images, colored them, fussy-cut the pieces and adhered them to the card. Finally, I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of pink cardstock, heat-embossed it with white embossing powder, trimmed it and adhered it to the card.

This cute little bear always makes me happy! But now to the promised tutorial. I hope you like it!

Will you try this? Let me know what you think. And don't forget to join the MFT Sketch Challenge this week for your chance to win $50 to the MFT shop! Thanks for visiting today!

I am definitely pinning your tutorial and will be giving it a try! Such a great way to add fun details to the balloons (I have all of the MFT balloon letters and numbers.)
Super sweet card! This bear couldn't be cuter and with those awesome balloons he is definitely ready to celebrate! Thanks so much for sharing and inspiring!
